. >> i'm all ears. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley reporting tonight from denver. >> pelley: good evening, president obama and mitt romney meet here tonight on the stage behind me at the university of denver at the university of denver for their first debate. the stakes are high because 34 days before the election this race is still up for grabs. the latest poll of likely voters by the urinal shows the president with a 3-point lead over governor romney. 49% to 46%. but that's within the margin of error so it's very nearly a tie. the debate tonight is the first chance voters are going to have to size up the candidates side by side. we have a team of campaign 2012 correspondents covering the debate, but first, the candidates themselves. we caught up with the president and governor romney on the campaign trail. mr. president, the race as we speak is essentially tied. i wonder, do you think this is going to come down to the debates? >> well, i don't think that any single factor ends up making a big difference. i think the debates will matter to som

. >> pelley: thanks, nancy. john dickerson is our cbs news political director and, john, what should our viewers watch for tonight? >> they should watch to see if the candidates are listening. we've heard about the preparations they've made. president obama has been preparing to point out that mitt romney hasn't offered a lot of details. mitt romney has been working on stories about working with democrats in massachusetts. but what really distinguishes a candidate in these town hall settings is that they can show they're listening, both to the voters and to their opponents. then they can react into a political moment that works out well for them. barack obama worked for three years as a community organizer, listening to people. governor romney as a bishop in the mormon church offered pastoral guidance to people on their marriages, on addictions. he has experience listening to people. they both want to get across that they hear what people are going through. there's no better way to do that than to show they're listening. >> pelley: a very different kind of event tonight. john, thank you.

haven't worked. jan crawford, cbs news, henderson, nevada. >> pelley: 53 million americans watched that debate last night moderated by our chief washington correspondent bob schieffer who joins us this evening. bob, where's all this headed? >> well, i tell you, it's headed to a very close election, scott. my take away from the debate last night was you've got a clear understanding of where both of these candidates-- especially governor romney-- thinks this race is going to be run... going to be won, and that is, it's going to be on the economy. governor romney used every opportunity every question. we started out asking about libya. not much was said there. it kept going back to the economy and economic issues. so i think that's where they think this is going to be won and lost. i think the other takeaway is and what to look for down the road they're going to go all out now and they're going to have to. this thing is very, very close. it is so close we may wind up seeing one candidate win the popular vote, another win the electoral vote. it could wind up in an electoral vote tie wh
